Well, I was a bit more impressed with that, although Maul’s character does seem to return to that aforementioned ruthless efficiency.
We get just the bare minimum of some personality and no background. However, in Shadow Hunter, Maul is still trying to hide his identity, but he leaves saber datrh on almost every character he kills. Aug 30, Landon rated it liked it.
That said, it was just fun seeing Maul in full Agent of Chaos mode, expertly sowing confusion and destruction without anyone noticing that there is a 3rd party manipulating the situation. But how can an untried Jedi and an ordinary man, stranger to the powerful ways of the Force, hope to triumph over one of the deadliest killers in the galaxy?

Saboteur is a short story by James Lucenoset in the Star Wars universe. On the other hand, I hope this story is eventually released in a paperback collection of short stories.
Sadly this story is part of the star wars of my generation, and the word “original” does not apply to it anymore. I feel like Luceno lowered the bar for Maul a bit by explaining how incompetent everyone else is so many times, but it’s his first mission out on his own. Coupled with this story, I also read the short story of “Restraint”, also by Luceno, which further delved into Maul’s personality as a young man.
Bondara confronts Maul alone while Darsha leads the others to safety.

Darth Maul: Saboteur
I much more prefer longer novels. He makes great effort not to leave lightsaber marks on any of his victims.

Yeah, I guess I’m complaining that this short novel is short. There is more purpose to the character of Darth Maul in this novella than the movie, ‘The Phantom Menace’ itself, as he is used as a tool in the capitulation of two rival mining companies that are eventually consumed by the corporate mass of the Trade Federation, further sinking them into the debt of Sidious’s grip.
Hath Monchar was also a welcome link to ‘Shadow Hunter’. Set after the events in another of James Luceno’s books, Cloak of Deception, Darth Sidious continues to arrange events to bring the Trade Federation in focus before the events in the Phantom Menace.
